How to do a Side Rope Twist Hairstyle

This is a cute hairstyle that I do frequently on my gals. It’s fast, and simple, and cute! This hairstyle works great on medium to long hair lengths.

Hairstyle Instructions:

Materials needed: Spray bottle, elastic, comb, brush.

Part hair in side part, either angled or straight back. Comb all hair down smoothly. Β I begin my twist on the larger side of part.

Take a section of hair near temple, and split in half. Wrap the two pieces around each other once. I wrap up.

Continue, but after first twist, add hair up from the bottom only to section going over.

Continue to add in hair as you progress around the back of the head, following natural curve of the head. Β Comb hair often to smooth both in the twist and the hair that you are add in. I prefer wet hair when I do this style.

When you reach the other side, just behind the other ear, I ponytail off the twist. At this point you can add a stuffed messy bun, or leave in a ponytail.

And you are done and looking fabulous!!
